It looks like the debt ceiling negotiations in Washington have become officially ridiculous.
During a conference on Tuesday, House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) showed a scene from Ben Affleck's movie "The Town" as a way to motivate fellow Republicans to back House Speaker Boehner's debt ceiling plan. Yeah, "The Town." The one about a bank robbery.
Even Affleck thought the choice was bizarre (and suggested they look at "The Company Men" instead). Our own Jason Linkins points out that the GOP could have chosen a lot worse. But we think they were on the right track by using a line from an Affleck movie as their debt-slashing credo -- they might have just chosen the wrong one.
Check out these seven Ben Affleck movie quotes we think the GOP could draw inspiration from (conveniently presented by the party's star players) below. Vote for your favorite!
